The Indication* for Georgia for to-day are fair weather, except probably show ers near the coast, with fresh easterly winch*; and for Boston! Florida, shower# with fresh to brisk northeasterly winds. It begins to be apparent that there Is to be no withdrawal of the United States troops from China prior lo the Tuesday after the first Monday in November. The rapidity with which the bubonic plague spreads may be notxt from the outbreak at Glasgow. On Aug. 27. there were three cooes, those of a father, moth er and child. Btx days thereafter, or on Sept. 2, there were ninety-three case# of the disease under observation. Such un alarming rate of Increase In Glasgow calls for extraordinary vigilance on the part of the health authorities in this country. It la rather gratifying to learn that the f10.0Q0.000 loan, which the government of Sweden deal re* to float In the I’nHed States, la no; for war purposes. A lout nil of the recent great government loans have been for the purpose of buying guns, ammunition und other warlike stores. Sweden, however, wishes the money for the purpose of building railroads. The most of her publh debt. It Is smd. li.m* been contracted for making internal im provements ; thus the debt will serve to Increase the national wealth, Instead of b*-*o<niia* a heavy burden upon the work ing classes. Kleveo new cotton mill companies were* organize) In the South during the month of August, Just ended. These companies represent a combined capi tal of 12,300. 000. They will Install •7.4‘.* splnd’c* und 1,310 looms, dur ing the month nln* new inl’ls ware brought to completion ami will begin op erations during the current month. Of these latter two mills are In Bouth Caro lina. three In Georgia and four In North Carolina. Among the companies of last month Is one which has taken u New Jer sey charter, the purpose bring. It Is said, to establish u plant for the handling and marketing of all the produts of cotton. It will have a ginnery, fertiliser plant, oil mill, meal mill, spinning mill and weaving mill. From many section* of Georgia. nn*l elaewhcre. there continue fo come reports of on extreme scarcity of cottoei pekin;; hands. This matter of harvesting la one of the tnort serious problem* a* well te one of the chief exps n*e# of the produc tion of u crop of cotton. In view of the Increasing scarcity of cotton picker* from year to year, and the fact that American Ingenuity ha* not yet been equal to the task of Inventing a machine to do the work, II seems that some new departure In cotton growing should be made. The solution of the matter. It soeme to us. would be to cut the present great plan tation* Into farms of from twenty to forty acres, and settle white families upon them. Half of the acreage could be devoted to cotton and the other Uilf to cereal.-, hay anti other fowl and forage crop. Upon such small cotton farms, th > children of the family would he the chief harvi-ters, and by paying uftcntloti to ths raising of food, the cotton would bv left as the money crop with a minimum o. expense* nit: uauk imi.ii vii:m t iiiti. t'MSO. j Hon.

No doubt Mr Gage thought he watt mak ing n good point against Mr. Bryan when he gave out hi* interview, but ft miy turn out that the point wcia far from being as goud a one a* he thought It was. THE Bosk KVil. |\ POLITICS. The power of the |*olltlcal boss la b*'- comlng enormous To a greater extent than ever before he names th*' men who are to have the office*. The people hnve very little to do with the matter. They do the voting, of course, but they vote for men selected by the party bo**. Jut now the whole country I* watching the polltical situation in New York. It I* believed that if the Democrat* nomi nate a man for Governor In whom the people have confidence they will be able to carry the *iutr for Mr. Bryan. The very genera! understanding I* thnt the great majority of the Democrat* favor the nomination of Controller Coler of New York city. They are not permit ted to have thetr way about tho matter, however. The Democratic boss, Mr. Bro ker. Is ngulnst Mr. Coler. In seeking the nomination Mr. Coler 1* not appealing to the people. He feel* thnt he would not have much chance for success If he should take that course Therefore, he ! ask ing help from some of the party ho**e* who have less Inlluence than Mr. Croker, and who. for reasons* of their own, are not altogether satisfied to follow Mr. Broker'* lead. The New York papers>ral! attention to the fact that on last Saturday Mr. Coler called on Mr. McLaughlin, the Demo cratic boss of the Brooklyn borough, and afckcd him to assist Mm in the fight he was making for the gubernatorial nom ination of the Democratic party. Mr. Mcluughltn told him that Mr. Croker considered him n faction!*), and for that teason was ngalnst his nomination. He gave Mr. Coler no satisfaction In respect to the matter. Is it no* pitiful that such a man ns Mr. Coler has to go around begging the greater p!|t*-.! bosses and the smaller political bosses for a nomi nation which his party wants him to have. Instead of going before the people and getting the nomination from them’ And the same thing Is happening In the Kcpublicnn party in New York. Bos* Platt has. It Is understood, selected the Hcputdlcan candidate for the guberna torial nomination All the delegates chosen by the people will have to do Is 4o meet In convention and ratify the ac tion of Bosh l‘lutt. Is It not a sad state of affairs that n few political boses practically rule the country, and each state anti city? Is It to be wondered at <lint there U Mad gov ernment. nut tonal, stale and municipal? If the 1 tosses select the officials they will necessarily direct legislation. Only such laws us they want will be enacted. Boss- Ism In politics Is almo*’ ns threatening to the liberties of the people anti the wel fare of the country as Imperialism. When Imperialism Is killed the effort to drive the hors out of politics should at once be mad* . An exchange recalls the fict that dur ing the re< ent < ampalgn in Bouth Uaro ilmi Senator Tillman declared that If he were scratched by any considerable num ber of voter*, he would rot be a candidate fur re-eWtlon. The return* show that something more than 80,000 vote* were cast, and that Tillman wai scratched on altout one-third of them Neverthebs* the pitch fork '‘t:ite*min” 1* u candid#!** for re election find will ho!d lit* *• at in \Vu*li- Inglon for *!x year* mote.

It waa mainly through hi* advice !i t the Houth Afrirsn re public* engaged in war rather than yield to England * demand*.

He b an old man ami then la nothing for him aa an exile In a foreign land. It may be Mild that if h* fled the country It would be to avoid cruel treatment by the British. There I* no danger that the British would treat him handily. The Boer* have treat ed the British prisoner* humanely—m i h better, from all accounts, than the Brit ish have treated the Boer prlaoners. And there 1* no reason why President Krug *r should not Ik d*alt with kindly. He la too old to lead it revolt against British rule. Conscious of having done hi* duty to hi* people, his chief and. sire, when peace Is declared, will U* doubt let* to spend hi* rrmuining years In the quiet of hi* home surround* and by hi* family. The Boers have fought a fight. The British have reason to respect Hum. and If they are wise they will show their reaped by offering thm ea*y term* of leae** when their resources for continu ing the war have been exhausted. TIIK C7.ilt AMI TIIK KIHOSITKW. It Is now thought probable that the Cxar will not visit the Paris Exposition. It was arranged that his visit should oc cur about the middle of this month. The police had gone over the situation very carefully and announced that th* y felt en tirely able to protect the Czar. At first the assassination of the King of Italy and the attempt on the life of the Shah hud mode them timid. The chief of po !lc- said that the chances were that all of the leading anarchists would make their way to Paris If the rzar should un r.ouncc hi* purpos< to visit the exposition. l-aer, he said to th*- government that he had the situation so well In hand that he thought the Ciar would be In no dan ger If he should make the visit. He pointed out to the government that all of the leading anarchists were under lurvHlhncc, and would !*• arrested the moment they attempted to enter France. Everything looked so ftvorabir that the Russian minister in Paris was notified that th* Czar could come to the exposi tion without running any risk worth speuking about. I? was Just at this time that nn Inci dent happened that made the Czar hesi tate to accept the invitation, nnd caused the French government to wish that he would postpone his visit Indefinitely. The Incident was this; The French Presklent, M I/mbet, was on his way to the exposition to distribute prize?, when Alfred Jacquemurt, a half-crazy waiter of one of the restaurants which are so numerous along the principal ave nues. broke through the cordon of guards, and, springing upon the steps of the Pres ident’s carriage, dropped & photograph of himself In the President’s lap. He was a harmless creature and declared that he had committed the net simply to show how easy It was to attack the President in one of the principal avenues of the city. The Russian minister at once communi cated the affair to the Czar. who. while willing to Ik* guided by his advisers in the decision of the question oh to whether or not be should visit the exposition, was apparently Inclined to the opinion that the Paris police did not have as good a control of the situation In Pari* as they thought they had Ami the chief of the Paris police was evidently of the same opinion. Therefore, the half-wit ted waiter mny be the means of keeping the Czar away from the French capital. Tlte position of m king or emperor Is not such a highly desirable one |n Europe at this time. The man who wear* n crown I* constantly haunted by the fear that the Mssar-sln Is always on the watch for him. He does not know whether he will be poisoned, stabbed or shot, and he Is not certain that an i*a*sln is not concealed among his trusted attendants. Happiness does not necessarily accom pany u crown.
